FOOTBALL


There are conflicting choices on today's three college bowl games and thus I think it better to just move on past them. Of course, I did make TCU a "Double play" on the Picks of the Pole.



BASKETBALL



NBA


Phoenix +4.5   Orlando

New Orleans +2.5  Dallas

San Antonio   -3.5   Denver



Happy day after Christmas!

December 23, 2018

FOOTBALL


Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Dec. 23.


VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


STRONG PLAYS: Seattle +1 1/2 Kansas City

                              Philadelphia -2 1/2 Houston


REGULAR PLAYS: 


Miami -3 1/2 Jacksonville

San Francisco +4 1/2 Chicago

NY Giants +9 1/2 Indianapolis

NY Jets +3 Green Bay


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Tampa's woebegone defense has been somewhat better recently as DT Vita Vea has developed. The Dallas D is still smarting from being cut up by Indy. TB QB Winston does not possess talent like Luck though and this total seems high to me. I think defenses might be OK today.


TAKE: Dallas---Tampa Bay UNDER 48


BASKETBALL


Saturday record: 4-4

Season so far: 128-111


NBA


Portland -7 Dallas

Sacramento +1 New Orleans


Merry early Christmas!!!




FOOTBALL



Here are your Late Consensus Picks on today's NFL and college bowl games.


VERY STRONG PLAYS: None



STRONG PLAYS: Army -4 1/2 Houston



REGULAR PLAYS: Louisiana Tech +1 Hawaii

                                Army--Houston UNDER 60 1/2

                               Troy +1 1/2 Buffalo

                               Washington +10 1/2 Tennessee (NFL)

                             


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The Ravens and Chargers have each been trending toward the UNDER in recent weeks and I don't see a reason that should reverse. Both will run and each will happily play a tight game. Lets:


TAKE: Baltimore--LA Chargers UNDER 41

San Antonio +5 1/2 Houston
